    Hopefully the major media outlets give this some play.

    This is what the country needs more than ever. Especially in Congress to keep either party from controlling the agenda in DC. The timing has never been better.

    IMO a true moderate party would be one that debated issues on their individual merits. Very subjective to say that but with party members voting their party 90% to 95% of the time it's obvious issues are secondary to the special interests that have closer access to our Congress people than we do.

    Good for them. A moderate party on the rise is what we need. The never ending fight between Republicans and Democrats is sickening and yet together they hold pretty much all the power in our government.

    The moderate party is an interesting idea, glad to see they got enough signatures.. the problem will be fundraising and name recognition... the folks running for Governor in RI next year already have had a ton of face time and a ton of time to raise some cash.

    It will take time and success to gain entry into the political stranglehold that is RI Politics....
